. for instance, yesterday the president talked about education. education polls really well among women. so they know what they're doing when they play the outside game. >> well said. thank you so much. nia-malika henderson, welcome back to "hardball." glenn thrush. beginning to sound like a pack of moon shiners. remember them, chasing the revenuers out of town? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. i just served my mother-in-law your chicken noodle soup but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup.
and work around children. everything we do and i have devoted my entire career to is educate children. so the voices of children who are not afraid to speak their minds are really pure, and they need to be listened to by all the people who make these important decisions. no -- there is no amendment that says that children have a right to grow up healthy and not be shot at. but it is just a given. i -- i ended my speech today talking about you can tell the value of a society by how they treat their children. and i think the horror of this will continue every time people sit down and think about it. that -- 20 little 6 and 7-year-olds could be killed like this. >> dr. janet robinson, the children of newtown are lucky to have you running their system. and thank you very much for bringing your voice to washington today and ava's voice, and thank you for joining us tonight. >> thank you, lawrence. >> thank you. >> gun smoke, let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. my hero, the great world war ii leader winston
engaged, educators, neighbor groups, public educators and public safety advocates, really as engaged in this issue as the nra, and that's a challenge. >> they might continue to shoot themselves in the foot, pun intended. i want to show a little bit of this. the nra released a web video that gets very personal with the president. take a look. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? >> to talk about the president's children or any public officer's children who have not by their own choice but by requirement to have protection and to use that somehow to try to make a political point i think is reprehensible. i think it's awful to bring public figures' children into the political debate. they don't deserve to be there, and i think for any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe. >> chris christie i think is on the right side of this politically speaking for himself at home in new jersey. why aren't more republicans -
reviving education for grade school and for university. he talked about climate change. now, he's talked about a$é+m) @% these things before. so none of this comes as a surprise. but he also talked about the need to organize. that citizens involved, and it's not a coincidence that he's making those points to and othe just a couple of days after he has transformed his political presidential campaign into an organizing outfit now called organizing for action, that jim messina and others will be in charge of. so i think he is aiming for those far away fences for things you would like to see him do, chris, but it's going to happen. not just if he wants to do it, but if he can mobilize enough political support to try to get over some of that republican obstructionism. >> joan, the same question. did you see the beef today? terms of substantive accomplishments worthy of a second term? >> i did, chris. it was a soaring speech. it was an inspiring speech. but it was also as david said practical nuts and bolts, talking about the highway system, talking about we don't want people standing in line

to educate us. >> that was well-done. >> alex, you jump in here. parents will take risks with money knowing in the end even if they're not rich when they're old, they will have something so they spend all their money on tuition and raising kids. so i thought that was what he was talking about which is really important about our country. your thoughts, alex? >> i think one of the things that's been underdiscussed in terms of how progressive this message was is the foreign policy piece. advocating for engagement against the backdrop of a hostage situation in algeria is a very firm flag to plant in the ground. to say that as we see al qaeda cells multiplying, taking over a host of failed states in north africa and now west africa. to say these are not our enemies, that we can come in peace, that we can have peaceable relations with evil actors in the world is very much obama 1.0. for him to say that now i thought was really, really remarkable if you're talking about hawk versus dove, progressive versus conservative. >> i thought that was a direct message to the mullahs and to the people of ira
. >> are either of you educated on what the assault rifle is? >> the president is going to follow the lead of people on the hill. diane feinstein. >> didn't the bushmaster not get defined last time? >> the law did some good, but it was easy to evade. i think they're going to pass a tighter law this time. >> let's talk about politics. you can do these things by geography. but we had ed rendell on who took on the nra in pennsylvania. he said the suburban republic, those who are going to be in trouble are those who line up with the nra who represent the suburbs. the suburbs will not put up with this. >> you ask people who are afraid of the nra. name me five congressman or governors who lost their seats because of the nra? >> they're obedient. let's look at this. the president said it will be tough and he'll need the support of republicans and democrats who hold wide ranging views on guns and gun ownership. let's listen to the president. >> we're going to need voices in those areas and those congressional districts where the tradition of gun ownership is strong to spoke up. ask your member of
dangers of military action against iran. i think that's where we are now. >> we're now in a cambodian re-education camp. >> i'm not sure i'd use that analogy, but i think they're trying to basically make hagel be in line with the absolute conventional wisdom in congress, which is that you say military action is on the table, which is okay, but you don't say that military action could have very dangerous consequences. >> yeah. let me go to joan on this. joan, and i watched this group. we're both doves. and i think i just am very skeptical of any wars, these bite-sized wars. what we confront with iran will be hardly bite-sized. not a neat war where we do the job and live with it. in saying these are dangerous propositions, it seems to me evidence of sanity. >> it's absolutely sanity. he's also called the defense budget bloated. they'll probably get him to walk that back even though it's true. he called for an earlier exit from afghanistan than perhaps the president would have backed at the time that he said it. although things have changed since hagel said it. so it's a terrifically important piece
paying lots of taxes relative to their income, and they need help. we need more education work being done in this country. we need a solid immigration policy. we have to look at climate change. there are a lot of things that the american people are expecting, and the republican party, as they get ready for the next election, really has to focus on some of these issues and not ignore them. >> chris, what's sad to me about that is that by virtue of mentioning the phrase climate change, it's almost like colin powell has kicked himself out of the republican party. this party used to play ball on that issue. now they're denying the actual science behind it. they have swung so far right, and my question after all of this, after that interview which was incendiary and was very much a line in the sand for the gop -- >> it's history making. >> -- when will the republican party admit they have a problem? because every time something like this happens, there is a doubling down, there is a defense, there is an attack on the messenger. there is a problem here. the party is in crisis, and someone has g
